THE 6TH !
Welcome To Fram Sixth Form
FSD is very proud of the sixth form provision, and year on year most students achieve the results they need to secure places at their first choice university. Many students also secure places at Russell Group Universities, which are world-class research intensive institutions delivering an outstanding education beyond school life. FSD has an excellent reputation for preparing students for life after school, not only through their daily education, but through outstanding care, guidance and support.
This page is dedicated to information about or sixth form provision, for both students and parents.
To see examples of the exciting and varied activities and opportunities that our Sixth Form students undertake, please see our frequently updated Sixth Form News page.

Information for students
At Framwellgate School Durham, we strive to make sure all of our students make the right choices for them, but also that they receive first class advice, guidance and support throughout their time with us.
In order to allow students to make informed choices and to prepare themselves for the future we have created a learning environment that allows individuals to flourish. Our dedicated Sixth Form Team are always available to support students, while our advice, guidance and enrichment programmes provide everything you need to be successful in the future.
The Sixth Form Hub
